Problem: Visual Assist Toolbar icons are not visible.
OS: Windows 10
Visual Studio 2022

Steps to reproduce:

  • Uninstall Visual Assist

  • Open Display Settings

  • Goto Advanced scaling settings

  • Enter a custom scaling size between 100% and 500%: 113

  • Install Visual Assist for (Select Visual Studio 2022)

  • Open Visual Studio 2022. At this point Toolbar Icons are OK.

  • Restart the computer

  • Open Visual Studio 2022.

  • Error: Toolbar Icons are missing




There is a workaround if you want to work with 113% DPI:

  • Set DPI scaling to 100%

  • Reinstall Visual Assist

  • Restart Computer

  • Set DPI to 113%

  • Now the icons are OK



It seemed to that the cached icons are not correctly created when DPI is 113%

best,
Stefan

Thank you for the clear description. Unfortunately, so far, no sign of the problem.

I have tried this twice, starting from a clean state, VA never installed, fully updated Windows 10, both times. I set the scaling to 113% before starting, both times.

Once I tried installing VA 2443, and loading VS2017, VS2019 and VS2022, all of the icons were shown correctly. I rebooted, and the icons were still correct in all three IDE's. Then upgrade VA to 2451, still no problem with the icons. I tried this since the icons changed between VA 2443 and VA 2051.

Then I went back to the clean base state, again with the scaling set to 113%, and just installed VA 2451, and loaded all three IDE's. No problems, so I rebooted, and again no problems.

I made sure the scaling change had taken effect in Windows before starting any of the tests.

Based on your results I should have seen the problem doing this, shouldn't I?

We are talking about the main IDE toolbar, just below the menu bar aren't we? Just to make sure we are talking about and looking at the same thing.

There is a bug that we are trying to pin down that causes the toolbar icons to be missing, even at 100% scaling, so it is possible you ran into this instead. But if so you managed to fix it with remarkable ease.

Today I tried it again, but fortunately or unfortunately (depending how you see it) I can't reproduce the problem my self again, even if I additionally delete all Visual Studio image caches in the local app data folder (%LocalAppData%\Microsoft\VisualStudio\**\ImageLibrary.cache).

If it happens again, I will update the post.

best, Stefan

P.S. Only for completion my current versions are VS 2022 17.2.5; Windows 10 21H2 19044.1766; Visual Assist 2451

Thank you for the update, all rather strange. I tested with the same versions of Windows, VS2022 and VA, so that seems to confirm its not as simple as setting the DPI scaling with these versions, but doesn't offer any further clues.

Hopefully you won't see this again, but obviously if you do, any clues would be most welcome
